This social work ethics text illustrates a particular method of ethical decision-making, the method of tracking harms. Through analysis of the ethical aspects of social work cases, the authors show students how resolution of ethical problems can be reached in an ethical and reasonable manner. The text covers the entire range of possible ethical issues, from issues related to clients, peers, and employers, to the issue of social work's commitment to encouraging a just society. Learning to analyze and resolve ethical problems is an important skill for social work practice, and the case method will help students to understand and practice this skill.
